About the Artist

Rory Scott is a multidisciplinary artist, whose work is recognized for its use of patterns, glitter and for its likeness to the Universe. Through both digital and handmade means, Scott explores the ideas of impermanence, the passage of time and the impacts of technology upon the evolution of humanity.

About the Artist

Rory Scott is a multidisciplinary artist, whose work is recognized for its use of patterns, glitter and for its likeness to the Universe. Through both digital and handmade means, Scott explores the ideas of impermanence, the passage of time and the impacts of technology upon the evolution of humanity.

Her project Impermanence, which began in 2010, is an ongoing documentation of her life and struggle with accepting change and mortality. Through recorded thoughts, sounds and use of retro sci-fi imagery, her work confronts and reconciles the passage of time by juxtaposing the old with the new.

The prominence of patterns in her work, draws parallels between the existence of patterns in nature and in the rhythm of our thoughts and lives. Illustrating repetition creates form over time.

Using the passage of time as a medium, she has spent the last 7 years gathering, constructing and deconstructing elements that will be used in 60 short films detailing her past and current life.

"What defines being human more than impermanence? It's what we all have in common but are reluctant to share. I hope when people view my work they feel a connectivity to me and our shared experience of traveling through time."

Rory Scott lives in Chicago and is an Alumni of The School of The Art Institute of Chicago.
